As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting much lately. Or maybe you have a life and didn't notice at all. Either way is fine. To tell the truth, there hasn't been much rolling in lately. The stuff I have been buying is so generic no one would care anyway so I haven't been posting it. The stuff I was excited about never showed up and I am tired of fighting with flakes and assholes.
So it makes me happy to say that at least I have this ripper of a new record brought to us from our reliable, trustworthy friends at React! Records.
Remission have got the melodic heartfelt posi-core down. Yeah sure they sound a lot like Verbal Assault but damn, more bands should. It's a formula I love and let's face it - we hardcore folk love our formula!
If there is any complaint at all it is that the record is just too damn short. Three near perfect songs with my favorite being the title track, "Winds of Promise". As always, it's better to be left wanting more.
The rarest (for now) color that was available with the pre-order was baby blue out of 200.
The next color is clear blue out of 300.
Finishing up is the most "common" color black out of 400.
As with all React! releases the quality is there with a nice printed inside cover with the lyrics, pictures and thank you's.
The record also comes with the standard issue React! posi insert (this one on humility, which is really well done) and a sticker. All in all another excellent release.
Now all I need is the yet to be dropped rare color out of 100 that we all know is coming. Back off, I want one first!
Welcome to my blog on collecting hardcore and punk rock vinyl. By no means do I claim to have the biggest, best or most complete collection.
I just love collecting hardcore/punk records and have since I was a teenager. I now have a wife and two kids, a mortgage, car payments and a downtown suit and tie guy job. Still, when I can I try to keep up with the hardcore scene, the bands and labels that keep me feeling young when everything else in this world tells me I am not! I will try to post every few days and hopefully like minded people can have fun with the posts and with your participation, start some discussions. Thanks for looking and tell all your friends!
